Sing Unto the Lord

If we love a person, we like to hear about him

If we love a person we like to hear about him. We find a pleasure in listening to those who speak of him. We feel an interest in any report others make of him. We are all attention when others talk about him and describe his ways, his sayings, his doings and plans. Some may hear him mentioned with utter indifference, but our own hearts bound within us at the sound of his name.

Well it is just so between the true Christian and Christ! The true Christian delights to hear something about his master. He likes those sermons best which are full of Christ. He enjoys that society most in which people talk of the things which are Christ’s. I have read of an old Welsh believer, who used to walk several miles every Sunday to hear an English clergyman preach, even though she did not understand a word of English. She was asked why she did so. She replied, that this clergyman named the name of Christ so often in his sermons, that it did her good. She loved even the name of her Saviour.
